do you say something or do you keep your mouth shut? I'm in a place right now where I think I should say something, but on the other hand I do not want to be involved in the drama... oiy!

  • Unless your friend asks your opinion or what they are doing could negatively effect them or others it's best to keep your mouth shut.

  • Depends on how close a friend it is. If it's somebody I'm close friends with, I absolutely always tell them how I feel.

  • Depends on how close I am with the friend. My very close friends - yes, very gently tell them that I disagree and why.

  • It depends on what it is, how close of a friend I am, and who their actions will affect

  • If it involves me, or if advice is asked...i will say something. Otherwise, i mind my own business. I have plenty of friends who do things i don't approve of, but i'm not going to be their mommy & tell them my opinion when they didn't ask for it. People are free to do what they wish.

    It also depends on how bad it is. If they committed a horrible act, i might say something. Especially if i didn't want to be friends anymore, i would tell them why.

  • You have to think is what you have to say important enough to risk your friend being mad. Some people do silly things but never want to be corrected about their faults. If you are close friends more like family and this is something that might cause harm tell. If this is something that will work it self out but cause more trouble if brought to light DO NOT take the chance.
